G has not left his flat in over 8 years. He was severely injured and is housebound and uses an electric bed to help give him more movement and to allow him to get in and out easily. The bed has become damaged and the cost to repair it is beyond what he can afford. This help would make the world of difference to him.
R is a 61 year old man who suffers with many illnesses. R cares for his wife who also has serious illness and mobility issues along with their adult child who has severe learning difficulties. R is being supported by his local foodbank and is finding it very difficult to make ends meet. They have no flooring in their hallway and it is not ideal as they are both not very mobile. Any help you could give R to get some flooring for his hall would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
C is a young man who approached us for help with a debt. He has a physical and learning disability, and is struggling to live independently. He has had no support and was not receiving the benefits he was entitled to, but has been paying his bills out of his Universal Credit and not eating. He is very thin and anxious - so we have applied for his correct benefits and got the foodbank organised to support him weekly. But his cupboards are totally bare so we need to restock, and he has no electric so this needs topping up too. Please help. Thanks.
D is off work due to a serious accident in 2020 and has three children. D is on benefits while he is awaiting surgery however COVID-19 has slowed down the process. D is unable to work at present. D's wife is on carer's allowance as their middle son has autism and is currently not attending school until a specialist provision placement is found. D is being supported by his local foodbank and is really struggling to make ends meet. Any help to buy bathroom flooring would be very much appreciated.
Mrs C is a lady who has no access to a washing machine. She has COPD, muscle spasms in her legs and feet, osteoarthritis her neck and knees, and rheumatoid arthritis in her back, which means she cannot wash items in the bath. She quickly becomes out of breath. She is also unable to visit a launderette as she cannot afford a taxi. Her income is only Universal Credit which means she cannot pay for a washing machine herself. Mrs C is getting down and she has washing piling up.
Mrs C is requiring help for installation and delivery for a washing machine. She cannot install the washing machine herself as she has numerous health conditions including COPD, spasms in her legs, osteoarthritis in her neck and knees and rheumatoid arthritis in her back. She has no access to a car, therefore would also need help with delivery costs. She has no family or friends that she can ask for help with the installation and delivery.
Mrs X has two young children and lives remotely. She is in need of some transport as she doesn't drive and would like to be able to take her children to school more safely than the hour long walk she currently does along a busy country road with no pavements. She has her own bicycle which she could use with the trailer. One of her children has special needs so this transport would be vital to keep them safe on the journey.
C experienced an abusive childhood and was later in relationships where she suffered from domestic violence. Since being alone she has become very isolated and struggles to manage physically and financially. C is now disabled and housebound, suffering from chronic health conditions including a painful back. She has a bed frame but no mattress and has been sleeping on her sofa for the last 2 years. This has exacerbated her back condition. Please can you help to buy her a mattress?
Mrs A was widowed 18 months ago and is paying off debt after she was cheated by relatives who took advantage of her financial inexperience. Her son who has cerebral palsy is now starting school and because of his disability requires extra shoes (as his feet are different sizes) and changes of uniform (as he has incontinence) which Mrs A cannot afford. Mrs A feels very alone at this time and would be very blessed by your help

O has additional needs and attends a nursery that knows her needs well and has the specialist equipment to support her mobility. Her new home is further away from the nursery than her previous flat.The petrol costs to get her to nursery and back mean that Mum is struggling to pay bills.We would like to support her with petrol costs so that O can attend her nursery and continue to make good progress with her development.
D has had a difficult life. He has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and is bipolar, in and out of prison.
